Brief historical summary

The Olde English Bulldogge is a recreation of the 18th-century English bulldog.
It was an American, David Leavitt, who decided to recreate the breed. A passionate English bulldog fancier, he was disappointed by the health and reproductive problems all too common in the modern bulldog. With a little research, he soon realized that the show bulldog had little in common with its bull-fighting ancestor. Based on old paintings and engravings, and following a breeding program developed by Ohio State University, he decided to re-create the 18th-century dog.
He started with 3 unrelated dogs, two males and one female, and mated the females from the first cross to the second male. From this point on, the females are mated to their uncles, every generation. He started with two distinct lines, to make future crosses possible. He used breeds that all had ancient bulldogs in their background. His dogs are half English Bulldog, half Bullmastiff, American Pit Bull Terrier and American Bulldog. In 1995, he was in his eighth and ninth generations in both lines.
